KCRW Radio remembers Bradbury’s influence on the Los Angeles community

Ray Bradbury moved to Los Angeles when he was 14, and although he is most often remembered for his expansive body of literary work, his desire to recreate the best aspects of small town life on a grander scale, detailed in a 1970 LA Times article, left an indelible mark on Los Angeles’  architecture and  urban development. In this episode of public radio station KCRW‘s Greater LA, host Steve Chiotakis commemorates the 100th birthday of the famous Angeleno with colleagues Frances Anderton of  the weekly broadcast DnA: Design and Architecture, and KCRW host and librarian Eric Lawrence.

Atherton’s stories of Bradbury’s collaboration with noted architect Jon Jerde and other developers in Hollywood reveal how Bradbury made some of his visions for a better future a reality.
